Wayward Theatre Company is committed to bringing work outside of traditional theatre settings, allowing audiences to engage with texts and spaces in new and exciting ways. Next up on Wayward’s site-specific docket is Shakespeare’s brilliant tragedy; Macbeth, playing at the historic James J. Hill House.
Macbeth, considered by many to be Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, brings audiences deep into the minds of an ambitious couple, hellbent on power and position. A supernatural prophecy calls a would-be king and queen to action and as they work to realize their greatest dreams, their world turns suddenly into a living nightmare.
As a follow-up to last year’s extended, sold-out run of Hamlet, Macbeth will be the company’s most ambitious endeavor to date. Working side by side in partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society, Wayward will utilize this historic landmark in ways patrons of the arts and of the Hill House have yet to experience.
